Roughly I'd say $150 or so for a one bedroom apt. I've pretty much always had 2 bedroom apts or 3 bedroom homes (1500sf) and my highest bill for electric has been $225. Gas for us is about $30 per month in the summer. You may not have anything gas in your apt though. I also keep the temps between 75-77 when I'm home during the summer and I think that's pretty cool.

That's probably right - unless it is a luxury apartment
It is much cheaper to build with only one type of utility.

That's really high, but who knows how much insulation they might have used when they built the place. We paid that much for a 4-bedroom 2500+ sq ft house.

The difference is that the builder of the house built for a customer who wanted good insulation. When they built the apartment, they saved money by not insulating very well (making assumptions here) because they didn't care if you paid too much for utilities. Your windows must also be terrible.

I always lived in luxury apts and some didn't have gas and some did, they are all different. Yeah, my estimate was a bit high, but I figured it probably wouldn't be higher than that and I don't know how much usage this person would have. If gas is involved, this may cover both.
